Welcome to Mossy Green Kids.

I work as a guide; connecting children with plants, harvest, nature and earth care.

I am a grower, horticulturist and  learner of the old ways in foraging and ancient food wisdom. Mossy Green Kids was created with the intention of protecting children's relationship to the earth and the earth itself, through awareness and knowledge for generations to come. 

 

It is a holistic, experiential approach to outdoor, child led learning.

Guided by the seasons, based in plant growing as a therapy, with nature awareness, horticulture, and wild play.

Outdoor learning sets children in experiences of self discovery, mental and physical well-being, innate nature connection as they develop a sense of place in the wider world.   

As a freelance gardener,  I also work to introduce earth-care methods to outdoor spaces including private gardens, school grounds and community spaces through freelance guardianship.
